Abstract

The idiom and proverbs are a part of their nation. For this reason each nation has its own characteristics and there are differences between each nation. When it comes to translation, the importance of idiom and proverbs becomes even more apparent. One of the most important points in translation is culture so, the translator must take this into account and pay attention to it. It can be said that one of the cultural places where the translator gets stuck is elements such as idiom and proverbs. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to define the certain translation problem in the context of idiom and proverbs. There are many ways and means in the field of translation, one of which is M. Baker’s methodology, which focuses on the translation of idiom and proverbs. Therefore, within the Turkish and Kurdish/Kurmanji borders, we were focusing on Baker’s methodology on the issue of translation of the idiom and proverbs. According to this method, with examples, we have divided the idiom and proverbs of both languages according to their equivalents. Finally some suggestions and recommendations for a better translation are presented.
